With a strong response to the idea of showcasing past photos, The Tribune is running a weekly feature called “Throwback Thursday.”
The Tribune will display photos from past Jackson County athletics.
We would like your photos and memories. Please email sports editor Jordan Morey at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 812-523-7069.
(Following information is for this week’s feature)
The Medora boys basketball 1948-1949 sectional champions.
This is the only team to win a sectional title in the Hornets’ basketball history. The Hornets defeated the Freetown Spartans 49-38 to win the 1949 Seymour Sectional.
In the team photo are, front row from left, Richard Dixon, Jim Smith, Bill Eastin, Ralph Thompson and Tom Fleenor; back row from left, Dale Shepard, Bill Koepper, Junior Lane, Don Huffman, Norman Huffman, Don Beavers, Tom Cockerham and coach Arthur Mose Weddell.
